clay bar/bad paint/crappy neighbors

So I tried the search button and Google and can't really find an answer. I have never used a clay bar but have seen plenty on YouTube but I got some bad paint and scared to make it worse. Also my top gets really dusty and looks like crap. It is less than a year old but looks like my old one so I was hoping some of my fellow vert owners would let me know they're tricks especially when drying. Also how to take off really bad brake dust. Any pointers and products you recommend I could get at a store.

Get a touch up pen and fix some of that paint. It does good I done it and can't even tell unless your feet away from it. But mine aren't the big or as many but it'll help. Just skip the bad parts with the clay bar

I second that. I don't think a clay bar is going to help any of those areas and it could definitely make it worse. Remember about clay bars: if you drop it, throw it away immediately - at that point you might as well be using steel wool or worse!

I ended up not using a bar. Did get some new microfiber towels though and cleaned the car real good
